A good movie

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick (it was even included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’ list), I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I don’t think that the story was really so original.

The tone is perfect, between tenderness and anthropological touches to understand chinese migrants in America going back to an artificial lying farewell of grandmother. All the group playing a game with their arms, is a touching drunken scene

" Notes: To be honest, I don’t think that the story was really so original. For example, back in the 90’s, Ang Lee got his breakthough with ‘Xi yan’ which was about a gay Asian guy living in New York who tries to marry some girl just to please his parents still living in Hong Kong. Still, Lulu Wang did direct a beautiful movie and I really enjoyed the sad and nostalgic approach. Indeed, what is at the centre of this tale is not really the lie to the grandmother but how the main character"

"1.11. Wangin henkilökohtainen tarina on myös globaali tarina. Perhehierarkiaa, komiikkaa ja Awkwafinan loisteliaisuutta. Tyylipuhdas ja ihailtavan mallikas."

" Date: 8/14/2020 Viewed: Amazon Prime First viewing Note: I wanted to see this movie when it came out in theaters last year, but I missed the chance to see it. Seeing that it is now on Amazon Prime (As of 8/14/2020), I finally had the chance to watch this movie. After watching this movie for the first time, I loved it. The Farewell is a great drama that is sad, heartfelt, and honest about its themes of life and death. The movie tells a great message about loving your loved ones while you can"
